health care is the top social issue. 33% say it's education. but there's also guns, abortion, same-sex marriage. we all know that the economy is actually issue number one with most voters, but social issues still play a big part for voters in making their final decision. joining me now to talk about the potential impact of these issues, cnn contributor maria cardona and amy holmes, anchor of "real news on the blaze." good to see both of you. maria, what's number one in your book in terms of social issues? >> well, it's interesting, because while you mentioned health care, i think a lot of voters also see health care as an economic issue, because that's the number one concern when they look at health care is costs, and what that is going to mean for their family. so i think health care is a big issue. and in some respects, if it's looked at as a social issue, i think it actually helps the president because he's the one who was seen as putting health care out there and even though the health care act itself is not incredibly popular, pieces of it -- the fact that those pieces have ac

, we saw increases in retail, health care, education, and look at the map today. every state that becomes lighter in this picture is a state where there was an improvement in the unemployment rate over that period of time. i will tell you there, ray great many of them out here. the unemployment rate for ohio, changed 7.2%. lock at the massive change in the country in terms of the improvement in terms of states that are no longer losing jobs, but now making jobs. to make that happen, the bureau of labor statistics says you had to have a lot of job creation. 4.4 million jobs created. what you don't hear so much about, we lost 4.3 million jobs in the dark days. the net gain according to the net record, is only 125,000 jobs. based on that even though the president did create a lot of jobs, when you look at that, look at the extent of his claim, 5 million jobs created, we have to say that's simply false. i know many democrats will say that's because the bush years and the economy that's left. the numbers simply don't add up the way the president would like them to. wolf. >> mitt r

for government, he agreed with president obama on education to get those women voters on board. you know, it was a different calibration about a more centrist -- >> did you see a tack to the center? there were times romney was saying we'll keep the good things in obama care, get rid of the bad things. we'll keep the good things in bowles-simpson and get rid of the bad things. we'll keep the good things in the banking regulations but get rid of the onerous things. >> coming out of this debate, the conservatives have really been fired up. look at the "wall street journal" editorial page today which is sort of a signal of where things are going in conservative thinking. they're very positive and yet at the same time, i think with a lot of sublety, he made other people, say women, feel more comfortable with him, that it wasn't sort of extreme, that he had an understanding. i thought that was probably the most graceful thing they did in the debate. they made him aggressive and more comfortable at the same time. >> we will also talk to ralph reed about the reaction among conservatives, especia

in education and health care and business services and retail. every state that is lighter in color where they are no longer losing jobs or, in some cases, gaining jobs. ohio, 7.2% unemployment now. that is better than the national average. the bureau of labor statistics says to make that happen, we, indeed, had to create a lot of jobs. how many? by their count? 4.4 million so far. but here is what is not mentioned much. 4.3 million were lost during the bad days. so the net gain is only about 125,000 and that falls short of the president's claim that he created 5 million jobs. it's just a little bit too much of a stretch. we have to call that claim false. even though many democrats will say in a heartbeat, look. he inherited a bad economy from george bush. many voters agree with that. nonetheless the numbers don't quite add up. what about mitt romney's claim about 23 million people unemployed? we need context and let me bring some tools up here to talk about this. median income in this country is about $51,000. here are categories we can look at. mid wage and low wage and high wage and wh
